Tick borne encephalitis
Just wondering if anyone has been given the same information as my friend. We are taking her son to Turkey in July and she took him off to the doctor for some jabs. While they were there she was told that this year there is a particularly big out break of this disease and that it was most important to have the vaccination. Now the next problem is if I decided to have my son 'done' it has to be done very soon and as he is in the middle of A level exams it the flu like side effects could be a problem. There is also the small matter of £100 per jab and there are 4 of us! I have just phoned NHS direct for advice and they will get back to me tomorrow. I can't imagine that all you folk who live there have had this jab but what have you all heard about this disease?
